Will civility break down

Japanese are well-known for their polite ways. In the wake of the triple disasters that hit Japan recently, this image might change.

Hundreds of people evacuated from towns and villages close to the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant are being turned away by medical institutions and emergency shelters as fears of radioactive contagion catch on.

Ongoing Disaster

The Fukushima nuclear crises can be much worse that Chernobyl according to Professor Christopher Busby, of the European Committee on Radiation Risks.

The exclusion zone should be expanded to 100 km and it will affect 3 million. At 200km it’s another 7 million. The current exclusion zone is only 20-30 km.

The radiation levels in the seawater near the Fukushima plant continue to rise. They’re now more than 3.5 thousand times higher than normal.

Radioactive material has also been detected in soil at the facility.
